You can see that in some of these campsites the rate has more than doubled.

The Coconino National Forest reasoning for the price increase is to use that more money is required for continuing maintaining and improving the sites. On the National Forests website they state that 95% of the collected fees will go to operating the park and that it’s been over 10 years since the price increased.

If you would like to voice your opinion below are the methods to contact the Coconiono National Forest.
